Simply my top novels, in no particular order
The Master and Margarita (Penguin Modern Classics)
"Perhaps the greatest novel ever written - satirical, spiritual, historical, political, romantic, unforgettable."
The Catcher in the Rye
"You can read it in an afternoon, but it will live with you for a lifetime."
Dinner At The Homesick Restaurant
"Tyler the genius at her very best."
The White Hotel

American Psycho (Film Tie-In)
"Split your sides laughing with the master of American satire."
Tess of the D'Urbervilles

The Life and Opinions of Tristram Shandy, Gentleman (Penguin Classics)
"Sublime, ridiculous, and simply hilarious."
The Night Watch

"Charming and eccentric coming-of-age story"
The Clay Machine-Gun
"Reminds you of the sheer power of literature to change how you see the world. A truly challenging read."

Pride and Prejudice (Penguin Popular Classics)
"Possibly the most perfectly crafted novel written in English."
Black Swan Green

"One of the best 21st century children's books"

How the Dead Live
"Savage, satirical and yet strangely and deeply touching"
